RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

I went to LS once. Got two new tires on a truck. They "recommended" brake work (I'm female and I knew I didn't need brake work). Sold the truck the next day. Guy went to switch new tires to the front (old school) and the bolts broke. I went in to LS the next week with the broken bolts and repair bill. They accused me of lying and trying to rip them off. Insisted I bring the truck in for an inspection - um I don't own it anymore... It was a bill for about $12. When I called corporate, the "customer service" executive answered my call with "yeah, I know all about you. I'm not doing anything for you." In all my years, I have never been so badly treated right out the gate by any business. For years I went to Winston tires and they would bend over backwards doing right for me. They never tried to upsell me, they stood behind their work, and they always treated me like they would any male customer. Now I go to Americas Tire for tires and my independent mechanic shop for brakes, etc. Both have always been great and have never treated me like some sort of thief. And neither has ever tried to upsell me. I took my clipper in to Americas tire for a tire inspection and they happily installed cat eyes on the rear duallies for me at no extra charge (I had not bought the tires or the cat eyes from them). Just the other day, I ordered new tires for the trailer. When I got home, I realized they ordered load C tires instead of load D. I went back in and five minutes later had the correct tires ordered with nothing but "oh, let's fix that". sounds like the guy that broke the bolts off (he's the one that broke them) didn't know what he was doing. its not L/S FALT probably had a hi powered impact gun set to high.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

I have a couple family members that no matter how many issues they have they still keep going back to LS. They always say no matter how many issues “they took care of me”. Yep great SERVICE, how bout great service with quality parts and labor without all the issues. I have driven around two million miles, NEVER have I lost a tire weight. I guess your just lucky, I believe my weights were the stick on type and I suppose one could have come off. it really makes no difference what I got was excilent service. they didn't try and short cut the job by doing one wheel they did all four just to make sure it was good. and there was NO charge.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

Manager got red faced pizzed with me when I would not accept the repair for free. I bet LS was glad that you no longer do business with them. Fixing stuff for free is generally considered a "good thing". Guess you don’t understand my point. Simply put I don’t take advantage of people. Oh I got your point with your first anti LS post - the other 13 were just exclamation points. Yeah we get it - you don't like LS. I have been doing business with LS for around 20 years - they don't do everything perfect but every time I have had a complaint I have had a reasonable conversation with the manager and he has made a reasonable accommodation which has always resulted in fixing the problem and often a reduction in price acknowledging their mistake. Can't say the same about any of their competitors. 2x, I've been a customer for over 50 years. I don't have service work done there (I do it myself). but I do by tires and recently bought 4 shocks ive never had a problem. the one thing I really like is there is a L/S store in almost every city on the pacific north west if you have a problem its fixed at any store. we were on the freeway and had a vibration about 55-60 mph. there was a L/S store just off the road so I pulled in they looked real busy told the counter guy I think my right front tire is out of balance. he showed us the lounge room and said they would look at it . in less than 20min. the car was done and waiting no charge he said they rebalanced all for wheels and that it looked like I had lost a weight. one thing for sure that's where I buy my tires they my not be the cheapest but you can't beat the service.

RE: Trouble with California

I cross periodically at the north end on 101. unless things have changed, most of the time you can pass right through, the place isn't even open most of the time. and yes there is a huge difference going into Canada. if they decide to search they search everything. we crossed last summer going to Alaska they asked a lot of questions, he was very nice about it. we had prescription drugs and I wasn't sure how to answer his question about them. anyway he said I did just fine. I asked about the dog and her papers that cost almost 100.00 he said I can see she is healthy have a good time in Canada he said. there was no one behind us at the time and I asked him how they determine there searches he said random and your reply's to questions and a lot of other things. these people are well trained on reading people.

RE: Trouble with California

I didn't read all the post. but I would like to be right behind the O/P when he interred the Canadian border and told them they need a search warrant. might be comical to watch.i've been there, didn't get searched but have several friends that have and they said it wasn't fun. Jay D.

RE: New AC problem

I'm by far no A/C expert, but when I installed my soft start kit the instructions said that cycling the A/C on and off was very hard on the unit. something about head pressure needs to have time to normalize or something. Jay D.

RE: Buckling bronco!

the trouble with most tow vehicles is that they are designed to provide a somewhat smooth non harsh ride when empty. so the designe of the springs allow for the first couple inches to be rather soft to do this. now when Joe camper hooks up his RV and jacks the W/D bars up so everything is setting level like its suppose to. he is now setting on that soft part of the suspension spring. this allows easy up and down movement to get started. when I installed air bags on the rear it greatly reduced this problem and when not towing I let the air out for my smooth ride.

RE: Buckling bronco!

I tow with a 1/2 ton and didn't like the bucking or porpising what I did was to install some GOOD shocks on my tow vehicle. then I put some air bag on my rear axel and pump them to about 15-20# just enough to start lifting the truck. i then added shocks to my T/T as we were headed to Alaska. all this plus paying attention to how I load everything and my W/D adjustment made a BIG difference.

RE: Dog Attack

my dog is my best friend and I look out for her all the time. but i'm going to tell you pit bulls are dangerous. I don't care what statistics you want to pull up they are still a more aggressive breed that other dogs. I live in a smaller costal town and we have a homeless problem,and lot of the homeless have pit bulls. one got away from its owner and attack a woman walking two dogs, it killed the two mid sized dogs in less than a minute. this happened right outside my work place. I got the woman back out of the way and the dog was going nuts. luckily there was a police officer near by and he destroyed the dog. i could go on for pages about this just in my area not to mention all the news stories you here or don't here. you sure don't here about any of grandmas Shazitsus killing anything.

RE: Ideas for a truck to pull 6500lb trailer?

we have a 27' T/T that weighs right around 6500# ready to camp water and all. I tow it with a 2010 GMC crew cab 1500 with a 5.3 gas engine. the combination couldn't be better it tows perfect and it has plenty of power. we get about 11-12 mph, some times a little higher or a little lower depending on the terrain. we use the truck as a second driver when not towing. the reason for the 1500 and not a 2500 was ride quality. the 1500 rides so smooth and comfortable and drives great we use it more on trips than our new car.

NO WAY would I EVER give someone 1000.00 non refundable until I knew EXACTLY what I was getting for it. Jay D.

RE: Sound like a good deal?

I'm no finance guru. but in my younger years if I had to finance something I would get the payments low. then make double or triple payments when ever I could. the if hard times came around I could still make the low payment. I was usually able to pay the thing off quite quickly and save on the interest. Jay D.

RE: Would appreciate the groups thoughts on tandem axle issue

your kinda caught between a rock and a hard spot on this. the dealer is probably going to say you did it and your going say no it was like that when I got it. your best approach might be you by the axel and he installs it free. Jay D.
